The Galen Historical Society is pleased to announce that our entry, the historical themed float "Posing for a Clyde Photographer", won Best Float during the Clyde Community Festival Parade on Friday August 14th, 2015. Historical society members Steve Groat, the photographer, and Adele Stirpe, the model, wore period clothing, and the scene was decorated with items from the Brick Church Museum. Thank you's go out to the Anstee Family for loaning the historical society their wagon for the float, Alan Stirpe for pulling the wagon with his truck and driving during the parade, Linda Hopkins for donating the period walking outfit Adele wore, and Beth Bailey for making posters and putting it all together.

He discussed the beginnings of the company, and displayed slides of the parades and the gardens over the years. Later, Mr. Davis answered questions about his collection. Carol Bailey, a former Rose Queen and longtime member of the Galen Historical Society, posed for pictures next to the collection.
